Memorials & Honorariums

Deer Park Public Library accepts monetary gifts for the purchase of materials to serve as memorials and honorariums. Checks should be made out to the Friends of the Deer Park Public Library and accompanied by the appropriate form. The library does not accept physical materials for memorials or honorariums.

Patrons may suggest a subject area of interest for their memorial, honorarium, or monetary gift. Library staff will then select materials from that subject area that best meet the mission and purpose of the collection development policy. Bookplates with an appropriate inscription will be provided for memorials and honorariums. Patrons will be notified when the library receives materials purchased with their donation. Once a memorial, honorarium or monetary gift for the purchase of materials is made, it becomes the property of the library.
